The Fast Forward Fund (FFF) was led through its pilot year by an international network of students, guided by its founding Board of professional mentors. Inaugural youth directors included 20 competitively selected students from 8 countries through the Bard Globalization & International Affairs (BGIA) Program, a semester-intensive immersion in NYC. FFF was independently incorporated summer 2008; launched at a press conference with President Clinton featuring FFF as an outstanding commitment of the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGIU) in February 2009. In 2010, it completed its partnership with The Fund for the City of New York (FCNY), which provided fiscal, personnel, and administrative management services for FFF through the FCNY Incubator Program. FFF was honored by SVN in 2009 as a finalist in their Social Innovation Awards. FFF is relaunching as Fast Forward+, a project of Global Momenta.
